Australian-born, Brooklyn-based songwriter B.R.Mackie “mixes folk and country inspired sounds with a distinctively Melbournian soul” (Australia's Beat Magazine) to create a 70’s lo-fi, pop-filtered amalgamation of modern Americana-psychedelia.
In the past year, Mackie has shared the stage with some of worlds finest acts; including Father John Misty, Brian Wilson, Patti Smith, Conor Oberst, The Felice Brothers, Alabama Shakes, Elvis Costello, Ryan Adams, Julien Baker and Eagles Of Death Metal, as well as playing festivals throughout North America; such as the highly acclaimed 2016 Newport Folk Festival, Brooklyn's Northside Festival 2016, the 2015 CMJ Music Marathon and Canadian Music Week 2016 in Toronto.
2016 also saw the release of Mackie's debut solo album In Folkedelic Country. Recorded in Brooklyn and mastered by Josh Bonati (Mac Demarco, Sufjan Stevens, Tallest Man On Earth), Mackie describes the record as a "stream-of-conscience love letter to the United States".
To top off an amazing year, B.R.Mackie recently returned to the studio with David Minehan of The Replacements to record a follow up EP that will be available in the coming months…
